    I stayed on the third floor. It was pretty quiet. The room was not fancy but it was all I needed. Hot water, comfortable bed, small refrigertor, TV that worked. The breakfast was awesome. The other guests were friendly. The staff was great.

    I am so happy we chose Akwaaba DC for our anniversary trip/babymoon. We have a favorite hotel chain for vacations, but prices this weekend in DC were super high. We've enjoyed other B&Bs in the past, but it is always a bit of a gamble....More

    Akwaaba DC, a magical place. When I entered the old Victorian style brownstone, I felt transported back in time. The quaint yet expansive entrance led to an area filled with beautiful antiques all the way from the old world parlor with picturesque framed window seats,...More

    Thanks for your question. Our DC location does not have a gym or pool. Vida Fitness, a full gym, though no pool is .3 miles, just a few blocks from the house. Steve
